71% approval on creation of the universe?

We have got to find that 29% and get them to explain what is wrong with the universe and how it should be changed to fix it.

How much of the universe have they visited?

Maybe God didn’t make most humans smart enough.

Actually, I think a 71 percent approval rate is quite high. Think of all the waste after the moment of creation. Matter and anti-matter annihilating each other. Several hundred thousand years go by before the universe cools enough for atoms to form. One or two billion years before the first complex life appears. And we are stuck with a universe where we might as well be alone, given the incredibly long odds against us contacting another intelligent civilization. I think the 29 percenters have it right.

No kidding.  God kind of dropped the ball.  He should have looked to the Japanese and made it smaller and more efficient.

. . . and this habitat created as a home to human life?  It’s mostly hot magma, with a thin crust with tectonic plates that move around now and then.  That is not safe!  I call the Negligent Design.

That’s the problem with trying to do something on your own without knowledge of physics. God should have brought in a few scientists to advise him before he started on such a major project.

Hiring some engineering consultants would be a good move too. Look how god designed us humans. No self-respecting engineer would run a waste disposal system through a recreation area.

You are asking impossible; God is not a material thing, like you, or your office.

Ludwik, I believe Mid Atlantic was making a joke that was not meant to be taken seriously.

{I swear, as much as I try to avoid prejudicial discrimination, after a long life-time of working with physicists and other chemists I have to conclude that the chemists have far superior senses of humor.  LOL }

They kinda have to, no?  Make a mistake in chemistry and the person dies, oh well, its just one person. We can laugh that off.
Make a mistake in physics and the universe ends…. cheese

If god were a person, people would blame him for the worst things he did, he created evil.

Since god is a other world spirit he gets credit for the good works, creating life.

If half the people place blame on him, maybe opinions about god are improving??
